UPM Raflatac launches new top-coated polyester face PET Matt While TC 50 for its durables labelling range; heat-resistant product provides quality thermal transfer print results, scratch resistance with compatible TTR ribbons

TAMPERE, Finland , February 21, 2012 (press release) – UPM Raflatac has launched a new addition to the durables labelling range. The new top-coated polyester face PET Matt White TC 50 offers a more fit-for-purpose solution in many applications compared with the highly heat-resistant PET Matt White 60.

Matt films provide excellent bar code readability due to the absence of reflection. The top-coat assures excellent thermal transfer print results and superior scratch resistance with compatible TTR ribbons. PET Matt White TC 50 is available with both general purpose adhesives and special adhesives for applications where higher levels of adhesion and chemical and heat resistance are needed.

UPM Raflatac is bringing more choice to the market with the continued development of durable label materials including white, clear and silver PET faces, PSA overlaminating films, PPs and high tear-resistant materials. The adhesive options cater for even the harshest conditions across a range of substrates.

PET Matt White TC 50 and other products for durables labelling are available through UPM Raflatac’s Small Roll Service. The option for single rolls in a choice of widths offers a reduced outlay for smaller label orders, or a sensibly small start to bigger business.
